Have the Iranian mourning demos obligated them to unwise actions?

Apparently millions of Iranians are turning out for the crowds mourning Soleimani (including 50 crushed, hundreds injured and a weeping supreme leader).

With such a huge public displays, I believe the Iranians have now obligated themselves to act against the U.S., UK, etc with more extreme actions than may be smart. If they 'don't do enough', it may serve to only enrage the popular will against the Iran regime, therefore trapping the Iranian government into something that could produce disastrous blowback.

In short, this may be building into something the Iranians will regret. This cannot possibly be good.

I believe Iran wanted this. They have other Generals. They're trying to hang Trump out to dry. They want him defeated.

I wouldn't want to be in any vehicle associated with the U.S. military or diplomatic/intelligence services anywhere outside the continental U.S. anytime soon.

Trump is a very handy idiot for the Iranians. Before this, Iran was in a state of revolt. Congratulations, Orange Idiot. You've united a fractious population against the US.

They have already replaced the man. I heard/saw on TV a friend of a high Shah official mourned the assasination. The official was 90 yrs old so this insult won’t fade quickly.

When I was in Iran most of the streets in all cities villages were lined with dead hero photos from past wars with Israel . Was it the 6 hr or 6 day war? also painted on buildings. Iran has a long memory. They even still glorify the Shahs ouster.

If you are Iranian, you look back at a history of Persia holding back Mad Emperors for over 2000 years.

(They are still pissed about Alexander the Great winning one over them in 336 BC.)

There are 2 promises he made to his deplorables Trump keeps sacred. No Mexicans and No Wars. He talks big, but he won't do it. If he does, it will not be because he wanted it. Iranians know this. They want to force a weak president into a war which will also allow them to basically colonize Iraq too.

We predestined the colonization of Iraq (a made up name for a country that never existed in antiquity) when George the Lessed turned over mid east policy to Halliburton & Co.

This may be where the worm turns.

If you think that you probably also think the Senator from Mastercard/Visa is the guy who should replace the President from banktruptcy - two sides of a same coin sir
